Getting Fit Through Tai Chi:The Morning Show Interview



Bookmark and Share

It's known as "meditation in motion" and has many benefits including: strength, flexibility and aerobic conditioning.

Wednesday morning, Jill Johnson joined us on KDLT News Today to educate us all on the benefits of Tai Chi and Quigong and show us some beginner exercises to help us feel better in our everyday lives.

Tai Chi is sometimes called "Chinese shadow boxing", it is a gentle form of martial art and exercise that involves a formal series of flowing, graceful, slow-motion movements designed to harmonize the circulation of "chi" around the body.

We found out this morning that Tai Chi doesn't require any materials, and is extremely low impact so anyone, regardless of age can practice it to develop strength, balance and flexibility.

If you'd like to learn more about Tai Chi and Quigong there is a free seminar this Saturday open to the public at the Prairie Cancer Center on the Avera Campus.

World Tai Chi and Quigong Day
Prairie Fitness Center, Avera Cancer Institute in Sioux Falls
9 AM - 11 AM
